    I have been working at TriQuint full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For the most part, there is a collegial attitude amongst employees. A lot of engineering companies in the area have a reputation for salary and promotion practices that encourage nasty competition amongst employess, and to its credit, TriQuint is not one of those companies.

    Cons

    Being a small company with little turnover, opportunities for advancement or to change groups are almost non-existent. Upper management prefers external hires to internal hires for almost all management positions. After being bought out by RFMD, the odds that the Hillsboro location will survive in tact are rather low. The consensus opinion is that RFMD is interested in the filter business coming out of the Florida and Texas facilities, and not Oregon's ailing GaAs fab and diminishing ability to get power amplifier design wins. If you're already in the area, go ahead and take a job here. Relocating for this company seems like a big gamble at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to promoting internal talent.

    Pros

    TriQuint rewards good work with stock options.

    Cons

    It is a smaller corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Pleas do not change your relations ships with your employees. Do not become the minute pinching large corporation that drives the employees.

    I worked at TriQuint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers. 12 hour shifts fly by depending upon what area you work in. Training was mostly OJT which I fully support. Engineering staff was helpful and open to suggestions.

    Cons

    Maintenance was spotty at best. As an operator count on tools going down and maybe receiving a quick fix at best. They don't want to spend money on the older equipment. Management has a way of letting their hardest working employees stagnate in their current positions because they can't afford to promote their highest producers. The layoff period for this company has seemed to come to an end for full time staff but the way temps are treated here is like gold one day and dirt the next.

    Advice to Management

    Praise goes a long way towards keeping your employees happy. Recognize your employees who are moving the most WiP...

    Pros

    I've worked with awesome guys small team of systems analysis, supported other engineering and production teams. The guys I've worked with were very supported with family emergency and open to job training opportunities. When my dad was sick and was diagnose at severe stage of cancer, I had to be on call 24/7 for family emergency my working hours were allowed to be flexible. The best areas to work is Final Test and Engineering.

    Cons

    In an operator view, Fab production managements play too many politics games, is power trip and pick favoritism. They are not supportive and the people culture environment is to tense. They do not give the operators the empowerments and the flexibility to become more of a team player. They tend to over us COMMAND and CONTROL leadership styles.

    Advice to Management

    Fab management leadership style "COMMAND and CONTROL" is the old legacy. They should give their operators the empowerment to work more freely and soon the output results you need will be at your dream. Fab management should learn the leadership style with Final Test management.
